Transitional Aged Youth and Juvenile Intensive Services (TAYJIS)

Transitional Aged Youth and Juvenile Intensive Services unit provides services and supervision to youth who are determined to be high risk.  The unit also supervises specialty cases including youth released from Secured Youth Treatment Facilities (SYTF), transitional aged youth (TAY) on adult grants of probation, and the Truancy Habits Reduced Increases Vital Education (THRIVE) program.

Youth released from SYTF have served lengthy commitments for serious offenses.  Along with intensive supervision, these youth are provided with resources and referrals to assist with successful re-entry into the community.

TAY, ages 18-25, are young adults on formal probation.  Behavioral and scientific studies of adolescents and young adults have concluded that the brain, specifically the parts that affect rational thought, judgement, and awareness of long-term consequences is not fully developed until the age of 25. Therefore, these young adults are assigned to this unit and provided with an appropriate level of supervision and community resource referrals to increase their opportunities for success.

THRIVE consists of a Deputy Probation Officer who works closely with the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office, the Ventura County Public Defender’s Office, Ventura County Public Health, and the School Attendance Review Boards (SARB). Habitual truants meet with school officials and county prosecutors to strategize ways to improve class attendance.  Appropriate remedial and community referral services are made available during the SARB meetings.  Additionally, the parents and the youth may be referred to the Public Health Nurse.  If these services prove ineffective, prosecutors may utilize formal court sanctions to hold truants and their parents responsible.
